CTF Challenges Test and Expand Participants’ Security Skills for Fun and Prizes
BALTIMORE--(BUSINESS WIRE)--#Bsides--Point3 Security, the leader in advanced training of cybersecurity professionals through gamified challenges, is sponsoring three Capture the Flag (CTF) challenges free of charge for cybersecurity professionals. CTFs are among the best ways to hone the specific security skills that are so important for purple and red team members, such as binary exploitation, reverse engineering, web exploitation, etc.
These experienced and advanced CTFs from Point3 are being offered in conjunction with the upcoming virtual Grayhat conference being held October 29-31, 2020 and BSides DFW conference on November 7, 2020. Point3 Security will provide an all-levels CTF for BSides Philadelphia Conference on December 4, 2020.
“If 2020 has shown us anything, it’s that cybersecurity is a constantly evolving practice, because the threatscape is perpetually changing and shifting. Security analysts need to receive constant training to keep up with trends,” said Evan Dornbush, CEO, Point3 Security. “We’re very pleased to offer the global cybersecurity community, through these great conferences, gamified hands-on challenges that let cyber pros develop their skills, test their persistence, and learn about the latest threats.”
The CTFs will be conducted on the ESCALATE™ platform, the premier cybersecurity gamified learning ecosystem, and will provide an array of engaging challenges. Entrants’ achievements will be tracked (anonymously if wished) through awarded points on leaderboards, incentivizing their experience.
